[Mailman-Users] Info email command limited to subscribers ??

I'm moving my mailing list to Mailman and was thinking setting up an
email alias for the list's old address to which commands were sent to go
to:  cohousing-l-request at communityfourm.net?subject=info
to return the info message to people who send commands to the old

However requesting info from a non subscribed address gets the

***** info
>>>>> Private list: only members may see info.

Anyone know which Mailman configuration item controls this?

I dont think of my list as "private".  I have generally considered a list
private if permission is required to subscribe.  I do not have that set up
for cohousing-L.

It seems to me that the info command should be availabe to non users.

Alternately, anyone know of a free place to set up an auto responder?
(Which might be handy in general.)
